We are glad you found us! Virginia Campers is a small group of campers, that continues to grow. We have been around for about 5 years. Whether you're here to camp with other folks or just want or need information about camping this is the place. You can also find information on places to avoid, Yes, believe it or not Virginia has some less than desirable campgrounds. Also, we do not care what you camp in, be it Class A or a Tent, Everyone is Welcome!!
I have had to take on the approval of all accounts, please bear with me will it may take a few minutes to an hour or so to approve membership.

OK, I have started working on a Google spreadsheet starting with information provided by mikebreeze - I made it editable by anyone with the link...https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RTPhrmxPHnhuphBh8WcWwjWxdDWnqDEvqBOdln88D1s/edit?usp=sharing
I don't want to recreate all of the databases that list Virginia campgrounds, but it will make it easier to find ones open this winter!
The fields I am starting with are:
I have stayed there and recommend it
I have stayed there and do not recommend it
I live 30 min or less from this campground --> figuring this might help if you get some where and are in need of something!

Okay, I know this is early but I'm going to throw this out for anybody that might have an interest. The South Fork of the Shenandoah River runs right by this campground. There is a public boat launch 7 miles up river so float trips in canoe or kayaks from there down to the campground should be fun and easy. Depending on how fast you float it could be a couple hours or more to run the 7 miles. If you like to go slow and fish (and if the fish are biting) you could stretch it out even longer.
Here is a link to the VGIF page with info on the floats. You will be lookng for the Alma to White House section of the river.

This campground has about 100 sites. About half of these are RV sites. My site had 20A/30A service. Their web site said that they also have some 50A sites. The roads are gravel. My site, though level, was grass only. The main activities available here are fishing, hiking, biking, boating, rafting and tubing. This campground appears to be run by a local outfitter. The bath house was clean. They have handicapped facilities. In order to get to this campground one has to drive .75 miles along the C&O Canal Towpath. It is narrow, so if another vehicle comes along from the opposite direction, some compromising is in order. There is an active train track just beyond the towpath so bring ear plugs. And the campsite URL is potomacrivercampground.com, which is a bit confusing. My Dish Tailgater worked fine and Verizon cell service had two bars. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway trip. I will return here.

Okay thanks to Erin for calling Outlanders Campground in Luray (loo-ray), Just got off the phone with Outlanders. We have 20 sites blocked off for 14 days
. We are going off-season, so those rates are the same as the Group Rate. Rate is $38/night. So, should get this out there and encourage people to get their sites early!
Important notes, especially in this group: Two dog maximum. First dog free, second dog $2.00. Leashed at all times. Certain breeds are not allowed-from their policy page:
All animals must be on a leash at all times outside of RV. Non-aggressive breed dogs only! Aggressive breeds include Akitas, Malamutes, Great Danes, Pit Bulls, Rottweiler, Dobermans, Huskies, Mastiffs and Wolf hybrids. All pet waste must be picked up and thrown away immediately.
Please mention you are with Virginia Campers when you call. Also post here when you have made a reservation so we know who will be attending.
